Google occasionally does a clean scan but they are few and far between. Even then, their scanner turns over 2 pages instead of 1 thereby missing 2 pages of text. Here is a very good Google scan with no missing pages!

My "I have yet to find one worthwhile book from Google." refers to full download to keep with content that interests me and not bad scans as I have yet to download a text from there, which is why I wanted the opt out. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

But I do often visit Google Books to read on-line Popular Mechanics and Popular Science Magazines.

Its got a feed back button on each page, but how can you report missing pages if they are not there because there is no feed back button for the missing page? The best I can do is report a missing page on a page each side of the actual page. I really hope the Goggle Robot can put two and two together and know there is a missing page in-between.

They are good scans so far for PMM and PSM, I read up to now about 50 magazines, yesterday I came across 12 missing pages, one after the other. It was at the beginning, possibly the original was not set up in the page-turner correctly.
